The food was excellent. Home made breads were the best. The service was attentive. The beer choices were numerous. We were there on a saturday at 4pm it was already crowded mostly college kids. My only complaint was the noise level. Some creative engineering could solve that. I will go back.

This place is terrific. We're semi-regulars. This most recent trip was for drinks and snacks after a show at the Hanover Theater. Impressive rotating draft beer list - the go to place in the area for Belgian beers. Food & cocktail menu change often to reflect the season - both from a weather and local ingredient availability standpoint. I had... More

Craft brews, local veggies and bread, interesting menu, good service. We'll be back, if for no other reason than there were so many things we wanted to try but can only eat/drink so much in one night! We came in early on a Friday night which helped to avoid the younger crowd which showed up as we were finishing our... More

Farm to table menu. The restaurant tries so hard to be unique that it was actually hard to order. They have a huge cheese selection. Best advice is to ask your waiter for selections. The meals were good, but just too many strange ingredients. We all loved the sweet potato cheesecake though. It was so smooth and tasty. Strange enough... More

Beer was served too warm. All of it. Got a carefully selected flight of Euro and US beers, and a separate 10 oz. All the beer was painstakingly poured by my cordial barkeep, and all of the tastes were too warm. (Of course when you say that, people say, oh well Americans drink their beer too cold; or, the beer... More

A Great restaurant. I was a little taken a back by the farm to table. But to my surprise it was incredible. I had A Cider waffle with apples cut up on top syrup they put on and a whipped butter with sweet potato flavor. It was so light that you really did not have too much of a taste... More

Bottled and on tap, the Novare Res of Worcester but with a better food menu. That says it all, a must stop when passing through Worcester.

Armsby Abbey was absolutely packed for brunch service but the food was well worth the wait. The menu is small, focused on local and seasonal foods. It offers traditional brunch food, with a twist in many cases. I thoroughly enjoyed the quiche. The atmosphere is better suited for an evening dinner or drinks; the restaurant is cave-like with minimal natural... More

We made reservations for dinner on a Friday evening. After a short wait we took a small table for dinner (we were 6!). We shared a Farmstead Cheese platter, a must. A selection of cheese, with prosciutto, hot peppers, home baked bread and other goodies. Mhh. I had sirloin tips with chimichurri. The dish was a amazing. Side note: I... More
